“That Way and No Other,” by Amy Carmichael is written from a collection of her many works published during her lifetime about her decades spent at an orphanage in India, started to rescue girls from being sex slaves in Hindu temples. The first chapter of the book is more of a history of Carmichael’s ministry in India and her 55 years of service as a missionary for the “least of these.”
The remainder of the book is spiritual lessons Carmichael learned following God and his calling on her life. There is much practical wisdom and application to be gleaned from the writings. I found it at times difficult to put down as you can hear Carmichael’s passion and experience that comes from facing some of life’s hardest challenges.
After reading this book, I have a newfound respect and reverence for Carmichael and her enduring ministry. She is truly an example of an amazing woman who literally laid down her life to follow Jesus, and found that every sacrifice she made was absolutely worth it.
